Blogging for Grinches!

So we're sitting here watching the Grinch for the umpteenth time this season...I just had to post it.

Every Who
Down in Who-ville
Liked Christmas a lot...

But the Grinch,
Who lived just North of Who-ville,
Did NOT!

The Grinch hated Christmas! The whole Christmas season!
Now, please don't ask why. No one quite knows the reason.
It could be that his head wasn't screwed on quite right.
It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight.
But I think that the most likely reason of all
May have been that his heart was two sizes too small.

Whatever the reason,
His heart or his shoes,
He stood there on Christmas Eve, hating the Whos,
Staring down from his cave with a sour, Grinchy frown
At the warm lighted windows below in their town.
For he knew every Who down in Who-ville beneath
Was busy now, hanging a mistleoe wreath.

"And they're hanging their stockings!" he snarled with a sneer.
"Tomorrow is Christmas! It's practically here!"
Then he growled, with his grinch fingers nervously drumming,
"I MUST find a way to keep Christmas from coming!"
For, tomorrow, he knew...

...All the Who girls and boys
Would wake up bright and early. They'd rush for their toys!
And then! Oh, the noise! Oh, the noise! Noise! Noise! Noise!
That's one thing he hated! The NOISE! NOISE! NOISE! NOISE!

Then the Whos, young and old, would sit down to a feast.
And they'd feast! And they'd feast!
They would start on Who-pudding, and rare Who-roast-beast
Which was something the Grinch couldn't stand in the least!

They'd do something he liked least of all!
Every Who down in Who-ville, the tall and the small,
Would stand close together, with Christmas bells ringing.
They'd stand hand-in-hand. And the Whos would start singing!

They'd sing! And they'd sing!
And the more the Grinch thought of the Who-Christmas-Sing
The more the Grinch thought, "I must stop this whole thing!
"Why for fifty-three years I've put up with it now!
I MUST stop Christmas from coming!
...But HOW?"

Then he got an idea!
An awful idea!

So how about it? Christmas carols, Christmas specials, Christmas concerts....love them or loathe them and why?

I'll see you inside!

Personally I am torn between *the Year without a santa claus* and *Santa Claus is Coming to town*

Altho, that video might make me rethink this whole thing!

The Peanuts Christmas special will always be number one with me. It's real animation and has the best music.

I also love the Grinch (always a Dr. Seuss fan) - the Grinch song by itself is worth the price of admission.

3rd would be Rudolph.... everything else is also-rans...

For Christmas music - I love the old stuff and hate the new stuff. I'm not a Christian, but all the old religious Christmas carols just have better music. The only fairly modern one I like is Mel Torme's...

I love the old kids stories, Frosty, Rudolph, etc. My son will be 27 in Jan. and since his first Christmas before we went to bed we put out cookies,milk and a suprise gift from the christmas mouse. I have no clue where that got started but I sure am glad it did. Cory was always singing all the old carols so those are my fav. His dad and I had to also put out food for the reindeer this kid thought of everything!! We would all sit on his bed me,dad,cory and read The night before Christmas twice!!! God I wish I had those great feelings now. But my all time fav song John Lennon HappyChristmas (War is Over) I have that on my cell ring. I also love I'll Be Home For Christmas. Which is kinda sad at this place we are in the world. Sorry to be a downer. Ok a Happy Xmas Diddy. I saw mama kissing santa claus. Happy Holidays whatever they may be!!!!
